Keane have teamed up with artist and producer Faultline to record a version of Elton John’s Goodbye Yellow Brick Road for War Child’s ‘Help: A Day In The Life’ album. The album will be available to download at www.warchildmusic.com from lunchtime Friday 9th September 2005. Tracks cost 99 pence per download. Help: A Day in the Life will be released on CD on Monday 26th September.
Last year Keane recorded a version of The Walker Brothers’ The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore as an exclusive download to benefit War Child, and have since accepted their invitation to become patrons of the charity. Tim commented on behalf of the band, “Every childhood should be a time for optimism and innocence. In many places it is instead a time of violent chaos, deprivation and fear. War Child is doing everything it can to change that, and we are proud to give them our sincere support”.
